Veronika Versace hails to us from Kansas City, Missouri. Born and raised there, she graduated high school and moved to Columbia, Missouri to attend the University of Missouri-Columbia to study Textile and Apparel Management. Veronika became very involved in her LGBTQ student community where she gained a passion for advocacy, education, and community outreach. “Veronika” was created on January 1, 2015 and she has used her talents combined with business experience ever since, and has become a young pillar amongst her community.

Veronika quickly rose to stardom in Columbia after winning coveted community titles such as Miss Mid-MO Pride and Miss Gay City of Columbia America. She became a weekly hostess at her home bar, Yin Yang Night Club, and began mentoring a new generation of drag in Columbia. 

Veronika’s success in pageantry continued as she competed for 3 consecutive years for Miss Gay Missouri America, placing in the top 10 twice, as well as competing at the national level for Miss Gay America twice and at National Entertainer of the Year. 

Veronika is humbled to have networked and entertained all across the state of Missouri and continues to build new opportunities in the world of drag.
